of the copenhagen meeting conference was not only a question of the integrity to agree on the goals and the different players, but also behind this the fact that it is a huge amount of resources to do something effect to and, you know, people are talking about 100 billion a year. that is a figure when you listen to what has been said and copenhagen europe 1 quintillion plus one plus one plus ten plus 15. so it's about the magnitude. and if we really want to address this problem as it has been for the future as many say to believe it is true, then we need to find more innovative ways of financing >> good evening. my name is leon, a fellow at agi and it is my pleasure to welcome you to this bradley lecture, the first of the new year and to extend a special welcome also to those of you joining us to the wonderful efforts of c-span. the next bradley lecture will take place on monday, february 8 when professor gerard alexander of the university of virginia will speak on the topic, to liberals know best, intellectual self-confidence and it claims to a monopoly of knowledge. it is for me a
instance, the president of the united states removes himself to copenhagen to bring home the chicago olympics. it removes himself to copenhagen for climate change. he removes himself to oslo to receive a prize, but he doesn't show up in berlin on the 20th anniversary of an event of biblical proportion, one that i'm sure most of us in the room would never imagine we would ever see. that shows you how he sees the world, reinforces that quotation. i mean, i could have used one of dozens. but the one i chose it from was the address of the general assembly, in which you can see his priorities. and to speak of the cold war divisions, sort of arbitrary and not to see how rooted they were in the fundamental values of the united states and the west, as cleavages of some obsolete conflict, is simply staggering. but it tells you a lot about his worldview. and i thought the berlin event was very, very telling. particularly, as you say, leaving out the great figures that reagan, thatcher, pope john paul, sharansky, sakharov, and others. gorbachev was the hapless caretaker. to his credit come he d
billion commitment to a host of humanitarian and reconstruction efforts. in copenhagen, it was japan and the prime minister that provided the most generous support for efforts in the developing world to deal with the adaptations that climate change will bring to the disadvantaged. -- and we have seen japanese support to haiti, communicated directly to the secretary when we were in hawaii. i think overall we've seen indications of this new government -- and we believe it will be critical in the coming months to make sure that our two governments are working closely together. you but clearly our issues that require more work and more consultation and from the u.s. government perspective, we're prepared to work with our japanese interlocketters. we've outlined what's our best way forward with the r.f.r. plan, and we expect those consultations with our senior japanese interlocketters will be continuing. i'll be leading a delegation to japan in about two weeks' time where we will continue those discussions going forward. i think the secretary and the prime minister wants to use next year
such as the u.n. human rights council. and most recently the copenhagen climate change conference. which demonstrated spectacularly the factualist of structures, the lack of common purpose, common interest and governance. the internationalist institutions and paper agreements seems to leave no lasting impression. did we really learn nothing from the early 20th century experience with its repeated and doomed attempts to regulate the capital ships of the great powers through naval conferences? did we really learn nothing from the kellogg pact who's signatories incidentally included germany and japan? that abolished war forever. an absurdity that won the u.s. secretary of state frank kellogg the nobel peace prize of 1929. sound familiar? but at least kellogg got it for an actually signed useless treaty. [laughter] >> obama got it for the merely imagined useless treaties. most notably the one he has been insisting on from prague to new york on universal nuclear disarmament. the depth of obama's naive internationalism can be seen in his pursuit of this deeply unserious goal. the most dramatic
